Rangers that staff the visitors center are nice. A very small selection of souvenirs available. The part I liked the most was the 3-D topographical map of Mount Rainier National Park with many of the trails. There are displays of local wildlife as well.

A lovely campground but basic. We were travelling in an RV. The camp sites do not offer any facilities. There are communal showers and toilets, all clean & tidy. All sites are well treed, have a firebox and bench table. Some overlook the river. Access to some good walking trails.

Perfect for pull-up camping with plenty of options to explore around. We were here during the summer and it was a beautiful trip. The facilities are clean, plenty of things to explore.

This visitor center is only open between June and early October with very limited hours; the main purpose... More

This is a nice visitor center to pair with the silver falls hike that is accessed here. Lots of information on the local wildlife and flora. Our daughter really got a kick out of it.

Once again the staff in the visitors centre were very helpful and knowledgable. She provided free maps and advice where to go and what to see.

We were looking for the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center sign while traveling on Hwy 123. The only sign is for Ohanapecosh Campground. So follow the signs for campground and you will find the center. The washrooms were open but the center was closed when we arrived (weekday morning).

as much as we enjoyed visiting mt. ranier the ohanapecosh campground and visitor center were lacking. the campgrounds bathrooms were not very clean and the water in the sinks were shut off. as for the visitor center we couldn't review that because they were only open a few hours a day in prime season

We enjoyed the usual displays but especially appreciated the clean facilities and helpful ranger who provided guidance for the lovely ~3 mile hike to Silver Falls. To minimize your climb, start the loop on the nature trail behind the visitor center, cross the bridge at the lower falls, then continue up the cascade a short distance and return to the... More
